Drone Strike Reported on Pro-Iran Militia Arms Shipment on Iraq-Syria Border
Unidentified drones have targeted a weapons shipment making its way from Iraq to Syria near an illegal military crossing used by pro-Iranian militias, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Wednesday afternoon, citing unnamed sources. Several Iraqi news outlets attributed the strikes to Israel.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the rare daylight incident happened near Albu Kamal in the eastern Deir Ezzor province. The report said the vehicle was loaded with weapons and ammunition, adding that there is no information on casualties and the extent of the damage.
Israel has reportedly bombed sites connected to Iran’s alleged missile production and transport efforts in the area before. (TOI / VFI News)
